In this episode, I interview my friend Sandy, a lactation consultant, and we answer all of your breastfeeding questions!

Here are the questions we go over!

-Standard symptoms that moms will feel once they initially start to breastfeed - nipple pain, engorgement, etc. and how to help some of these remedies?
-What are some of the common complaints you see in your breastfeeding group?
-What are your recommendations on starting to build a freezer supply for when you return to work?
-What does a typical nursing/pumping schedule look like? Is there even a schedule, and how does this change over time?
-Milk supply issues - what should I do if I feel like I’m not making enough milk?
-Another milk supply issue - I’m making too much, what should I do?
-Nipple Shields? I Can you explain how they work and best practices?
-Any last tips for moms?
